5 years ago

Wolves 0 Newcastle 1 – Saturday 11 February 5.30pm

A ‘gritty’ performance saw Newcastle take all three points and return to the top of the Championship.

Quality was minimal (going forward) and commitment was everything as Newcastle added yet another three very valuable points.

The contribution of Aleksandar Mitrovic kind of summed United’s performance up.

The No.45 seeing little of the ball, getting involved in fractious situations, before slotting home in the 44th minute and then getting subbed at the break.

Watch his winning goal below.
